New How To Train Your Dragon 2 Trailer Arrives
The wyrm has turned

19 December 2013  |  Written by Phil de Semlyen

Flaming Nora, it’s the new How To Train Your Dragon 2 trailer and it’s more chockfull of wyrmy goodness than Smaug’s Christmas eggnog. The Hobbit may boast one scaly fire-breather but we lost count at approximately a GAJILLION here. Gasp at the scaly majesty for yourself below.

 

The sequel picks up five years after the first movie. The Vikings, now with handy dragon-based transport - longboats now being for suckers - are able to explore far beyond the boundaries of the island of Berk. Teenager Hiccup (Jay Baruchel) and cuddly Toothless the Dragon are at the vanguard of this exploration, flying far and wide to explore the newly discoverable world and pillage it for its natural resources encounter mysterious Dragon Rider and Cate Blanchett’s hermetic dragon rescuer.

Trouble, however, is brewing for the pair and possibly their Viking homestead too, in the form of a dark force gathering dragons to conquer the world.

Hopefully this will match the success of the first film, replete as it was with gentle dignity, genuine emotion and large, barnacle-nosed Norsemen. See for yourself when How To Train Your Dragon flaps in and accidentally scorches your nearest cinema on July 4, 2014. Head to the teaser trailer for more scaly loveliness in the meantime.

Its relevant to me that the content of films is always going to provide a peak into the plot of the film. Everyone that is a lover of film would understand this. its a requirement to show the work that has been involved into a product that mixes in with the other films or film. Not to say this can be very annoying at times and can be the fail as to much content can be played out in a trailer. I do look forward to this film and hope it lives to its name as the second film of "how to train a More

RE: LOVE THIS MOVIE BUT WHAT THE FOX???
L: GrizBe L: Derek B Loved the first movie & this looks just as great. BUT REALLY, why have FOX added that HUGE spoiler in it. You don't put things like that in the trailer!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! They have basically shown the whole films plot in 2:42 ghh.. I agree, I hate when Studios do stuff like that. They could have given us the same trailer pretty much while cutting out the huge spoilers, which I won't mention here incase people are trying to avoid them. Still though More
